GBS organizations must continuously expand their reach and capabilities. Those seeking to expand the scope and sophistication of their services must develop the skills of their staff to be able to support and deliver these services. This requires training and career development programs focused on the skills, knowledge and experience needed to take on more sophisticated roles.
